Built off the success of the 1st generation Ares BTR, the GEN 2 is still a top-tier riflescope, without the price tag. The Ares GEN 2 acquires a new stainless steel turret design, just like the Midas TAC and Ares ETR lines. The new turret design features sharper, more tactile clicks. Still featuring HD glass, a new optical system provides an even brighter and clearer image throughout the magnification range. A one-piece, precision machined aircraft-grade aluminum 6061-T6 aluminum scope body, precision zero stop, and impeccable tracking will deliver precise, accurate results in any field.

This Ares BTR 4.5-27×50 Model has APLR3 first focal plane illuminated MOA reticle in it. Please click the link or download the reticle instruction manual in Specification for more details…







HD Glass HD Glass gives you better light transmission, brighter, and sharper image.
Illuminated Reticle The illuminated reticle provides greater visibility during dusk and dawn and other low ambient light environment.
First Focal Plane Reticle First focal plane reticle stays valid at all power settings allowing you to fully utilize the specially designed reticle that shrinks or grows along with your target as you zoom in or out. The reticle offers quick target engagement at low power while offering precise holdover positions with finer details.
Etched Glass Reticle Reticle etched on the glass that provides excellent backing support for complex reticle design and offers great durability and much higher shock resistance to recoil
Advanced Fully Multicoated Fully Multicoated optics effectively reduces reflected light and increases the transmission of light giving you a brighter image than normal single coated lenses
XPL Coating XPL Coating gives you an extra protection on the exterior lenses from dirt, oil and scratches or anything else mother nature can throw at you.
Precision Zero Stop System The system allows you to lock down your zero position and dial back to it with a sharp and precise stop right at your zero mark even you are turning it in pitch-dark or blinded folded.
High Precision Erector System The high precision erector system processed by high precision CNC machine with +/- 0.0001mm tolerance level to provide you the most accurate power settings and smoothest magnification change
6061 T6 Aluminum The 6061T6 aircraft grade aluminum tube that has exceptional strength and superior mechanical integrity will protect these world class optics no matter what punishment you throw at it.
Exposed Tactical Direct Dial Exposed Direct Dial Turrets for elevation and windage allow you to quickly make adjustment as you needed and engage your target within a blink of your eyes
One Piece Tube Construction Heat treated one piece tube gives the scope extra strength over multi-piece tubes. A one piece tube also is better at keeping moisture out thus keeping your scope fog proof for the life of the product
Waterproof Waterproof to protect the scope in the harshest weather conditions or if accidently submerged underwater
Fog proof Fog proof to allow you to immediately engage your target when you take your rifle to cold ambient temperature from warm inside
Shockproof Robust mechanical system with special designs on both control and erector system that give you the ultimate recoil resistance to withstand 1000G recoil for 1000 times.
Argon Purged Argon Purging uses the inertia gas with bigger size molecules to purge any moisture out of the tube giving you better waterproofing and thermal stability .

    This is an amazing scope! Clear, and precise. Love the hard zero stop. It’s FFP and the turret clicks are crisp. My 300 Win Mag and this Ares are a deadly pair. Looking forward to Elk and Mtn Goat seasons.

    If only the turrets were locking. Great in every other way, very positive clicks, glass is great, illumination is off between brightness settings which is a plus. Great scope for the price. Reticle is fantastic, especially at higher magnification. There isn’t a better scope out there in this price range. Many scopes $1000 more that have the same or less features. If only the turrets were locking! Maybe Gen II

    There simply isn’t a scope that can match this one for the price. The clarity of the glass is that of a higher end scope. It holds a good crisp image, even at 27x zoom. The light gathering on it was better than I expected. I was still able to see through the scope in the very early morning and late afternoon. The turret is a little soft on the clicks, but still noticeable. The tracking on the scope and field of view are both good. I would definitely recommend this scope to anyone who is looking for a longer range optic.
    The only thing to watch out for, when I took this scope out on a rugged mountain hunt. The rifle was knocked around a little, one of the screws for the turret fell out and i had to Re-Zero the gun. The gun wasn’t dropped our thrown, just normal motion of being carried up and down steep terrain. Not enough to have me believe a screw should’ve fell out. This could just be a result of me not tightening the screw enough, but just keep an eye out for it!

    Crystal clear optics and precise adjustment turrets. Can’t find anything to complain about. Really like the razor sharp reticle it is bright enough for sunny day use if needed.Turret clicks are on the soft side but fully functional. Very nice scope a real value at this price point, optics as good as scopes costing much more. I can’t speak to the longevity, but so far I feel like I bought a winner, I guess time will tell. It usually does.

    Excellent scope. Glass clarity is good. Features all work well. You need to be perfectly behind it when on full power but the glass is clear and there is no milky distortions at full zoom. Clicks are a little soft and small but it lines up perfectly. Tracking is faultless. There is no scope cover or sunshade included so buy them now!

    Received my Athlon BTR 4.5-27 this week and had the opportunity to shoot it today next to my zeiss V6 5-30. You guys did an awesome job with this scope. The clarity was on par with the zeiss which I didn’t expect at all from a scope less than half the price. The magnification dial feels perfect and it focuses easy. If I had one complaint about the scope it would be the clicks on the turrets feeling too light but that’s my personal preference. The reticle is perfect for what I do (long range shooting and hunting). Glad I ran across your scopes, now time to see if it holds up to pack trips in the hills.
